Kaslo to Sandon Rails to Trails Society


We are pleased to report the last bridge on the Historic Wagon Road has been completed. This has all taken place with the hard work of numerous volunteers, in kind donors and some funding from the Recreation Foundation of British Columbia. 

Herb Thompson, Gordon Fitchett and Ian McKinnon spearheaded and guided numerous volunteers, who contributed many days preparing and installing the 36 foot bridge across Murray Creek just past Retallack on the north side. This ten year project saw a total of five bridges built to make the Wagon Road a complete multi-use facility from Kaslo to Bear Lake.

The Kaslo to Sandon Rails to Trails Society have a legal agreement with Recreation Sites and Trails BC to maintain this facility for the benefit of all residents and visitors. Many individuals and organizations have adopted sections of the Wagon Road to assist with this maintenance. 

All individuals interested in outdoor recreation are encouraged to come out and enjoy their particular activity on this fantastic asset in our own backyard.
